The parade of yesterday’s stars who served their country admirably, honorably and patriotically is long. The medals they were awarded are real. And most of all, their talent was boundless as compared to today’s attention-seeking, gyrating, painted Hollywood misfits.

The video below gives you an idea of what real talent is.
Incidentally — how many of you knew that James Cagney, the tough-talking movie tough guy was a professional dancer? And Hope, a comedian, could surely hold his own.
